Healthy Is In!

Although healthy living should be a staple throughout society no matter the decade, it does seem to be one of the biggest trends as of late.  Whether it's the latest workouts (SoulCycle, Pound, CrossFit, Obstacle Races), the latest fitness technology (Fitbit, Jawbone, Sensor Socks, HAPIfork), or the latest diets (Paleo, gluten free, juice cleanses, coconut everything), Los Angeles has jumped on board and is running/jumping/cycling its way to a healthier life.  Hand in hand with healthy living and the uprising of green living, public transportation options, and constant new development throughout L.A., people are looking for better and more active ways to get around this big city.

If you've ever been to a CicLAvia event, you may have been surprised by the sheer number of people who own and ride bikes throughout Los Angeles, and thoroughly enjoy it.  This city is typically known for being saturated with automobiles, but underneath those 4 gas-powered wheels is a city in love with fitness and the wind on their face, coupled with the productivity of getting to a destination.

Los Angeles has been making great strides with an increase in public transportation, and has been trying to get on board with the latest traffic reduction efforts with programs such as Bike Sharing, trailing behind other large cities including New York City, San Diego, Orlando, Phoenix, and Seattle.  This is evidence of the shifting tides in our transportation desires.  More people want to get out of their polluting cars, and not stop and go in traffic every weekday morning and evening.

The Brookfield management team at the Bank of America Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles was already seeing the rising trend of its tenants biking to work, and knew that their Seattle branch had seen similar trends and had created an indoor area for tenants to store their bicycles.  The L.A. team then took the initiative to create a space in their building for tenants to safely house their bikes upon arriving at their office, and even shower before heading to work.

Brookfield took a once empty storage room, and developed from the ground up an aesthetically pleasing space that serves as a great area to transition from "morning workout" to "day at the office".  They teamed with Duggan and Associates to paint all of the paintable surfaces, and to install all of the drywall throughout the space creating 2 shower rooms and closing off the ceiling.  Brookfield also installed a surface along the wall that can be used for bike repair, and offers complimentary bike tools, an air compressor, and a bike repair stand.  The shower rooms are supplied with complimentary towels.  The room is also equipped with a security key entrance and security cameras both inside and outside of the room.  Lockers will eventually be installed inside the room as well.  Once word got out amongst the Brookfield offices of this well-created bike room, the Bank of America Plaza team was inundated with requests for the room specs so that they could replicate the space.

With the bike room option presented, more tenants may be inspired to bike to work and can start their day with their blood flowing post-bike ride, increasing energy and productivity.  Building Management is able to contain and safely store the growing number of bikes on their property and keep tenants from pushing their bikes up to their suites.  The cars being replaced with bikes will begin to alleviate parking congestion.  Oh, and Mother Earth is a tad bit cleaner.

Sometimes we like to show off...

Our Duggan field team is constantly out at various properties working on an array of projects.  They often take photos of their finished work, or the work in progress, and this gives us an opportunity to share some of the things we are working on with all of you!
